Thankful 4 of July
It's also Thankful Thursday and we have a lot to be thankful for this week. So before we fall asleep at the computer and forget, we want to shout out THANK YOU, KHYRA! Back in the beginning of March Khyra was one of the winners of 26 pet items. She decided to share what she couldn't use and we were fortunate to be online the Saturday night she offered some items on Facebook. Sam Models his Thundershirt posted in April.
The rest of our goodies arrived a few days ago.
Percy: So the dogs get all the goodies and we cats get ... well, we get to wonder why Miss Khyra would think we need cat litter deodorant. She must have sent it for the human litterbox. You think? Yes, definitely for Jan's litterbox. Thanks, Khyra.
Buddy: We tried on our new finery today and Jan said we were the best models she's ever dealt with.
Percy: Uh, Buddy, her face was kind of screwed up when she said that. She was poking fun at you guys.
Buddy: Why would she poke fun at us? We were perfectly obedient. See.
Merci: I don't think this is a very good example, Buddy. We're a bit uncoordinated here. How about this one.
Sam: Um, I don't think this is a good example either. It's all your fault, Buddy.
Buddy: Me? What did I do wrong?
Sam: You were hovering. Jan said sit and your butt hovered.
Buddy: Hovered? I sat.
Sam: Look again, Hover Butt. You only pretended to sit. And you weren't very good at pretending. Your butt isn't anywhere even approximately near the ground.
Buddy: Well, at least Jan didn't need to put our blog name over .. um, a certain part of my anatomy. A little brazen, weren't you? And besides, when I sat down the camera couldn't catch my new harness.
Sam: And that one would be you, I suppose? I don't think so!
Merci: That's not true. I did everything Jan told me to.
Sam: You mean you did everything Jan told you NOT to do! Sit up, Merci, while I walk around and get a shot. No, Merci, I told you to face forward. Stand up. I don't want a shot of your tummy. Sit here and I'll walk around you for the umpteenth time.
Merci: Well, if you hadn't been so jealous you kept stepping on me for attention, maybe I would have stayed still.
Merci: Yes, we had a nice, slow stroll again tonight. Slow because Jan's ankle and foot have been giving her serious trouble the last couple of weeks and she has been having trouble walking (or sitting), so we have to practically walk backwards to keep down with her (as opposed to keeping up).
Sam: She said she really likes the front lead harness on Buddy. He walked very well in it today. Little does she know he's waiting for her to stop being an invalid so he can lead the parade again. Can't wait to see that.
Percy: It's a bit hot and humid in the house, so I hope you will forgive the canine rivalry. That would never happen between us kitties, would it, Micah? *devilish grin*
